Mr. Stubborn is one of the four new characters created in The Mr. Men Show. He is also the Mr. Men Show's counterpart of Little Miss Stubborn. He is voiced by stand-up comedian Godfrey in the US version,and Lewis MacLeod in the UK and Australia version.
Mr. Stubborn was made exclusively for The Mr. Men Show. He is a purple oval/egg shaped Mr. Man. He has a little yellow rounded triangle nose, a black unibrow above his eyes and he also has two strands of black hair sticking up on the top of his head. Mr. Stubborn resembles Mr. Grumble because of their body shape and is Little Miss Stubborn's brother and they are all purple in colour. It might be possible to say that Mr. Stubborn might have originally been Little Miss Stubborn (Little Miss Stubborn doesn't appear on "The Mr. Men Show" but she might actually be his sister who appeared in the later books and the original television series. The only possible way to tell the two of them apart from each other is that Little Miss Stubborn might be a bit less stubborn and maybe just a bit more friendlier than Mr. Stubborn. She has admitted that she can be wrong in a 90's episode). Mr. Stubborn never listens to good advice from anyone and to prove it: he is always much too stubborn to admit he was ever wrong. He often assumes others are wrong, even when it is obvious that he is wrong, even if he finds out he's wrong he still doesn't admit it. If possible, he misuses items and after they break or if he breaks the things that he touches, he thinks that they're cheap and also even remarks that they are cheap. (e.g. "This stove is cheap!").
Family: Little Miss Stubborn (sister)
Friends: Mr. Messy (Sometimes. In the episode, Snow from Season 1, he had a pizza (which had gotten covered in frost and icicles from the bitter cold icy and snowy weather) delivery from him Mr. Bounce delivered to his house and in the episode, Shoes from Season 2, he and also Mr. Quiet helped him to find one of his sneakers which he had lost in a large forest and they met a large and terrifying bear (who later took Mr. Stubborn's Safari hat after Mr. Stubborn got angry and had enough and then walked off home angrily and then the bear ate Mr. Stubborn's Safari hat and it also made Mr. Quiet and Mr. Messy run away in fear), Little Miss Daredevil (sometimes but only if she doesn't do her dangerous daredevil stunts), Mr. Nosey (sometimes like when he helped him catch a big fish from a pond), Mr. Small (sometimes and he also helped him catch a big fish from a pond), Mr. Happy (sometimes) and Little Miss Sunshine (sometimes and one time he was actually kind to her by winning her a cuddly stuffed toy after he won the Whack the Heads game with a big hammer along with Mr. Bump and a strawberry pink cotton candy on a stick/strawberry pink candy floss on a stick in the UK version) on it at the funfair shown in the episode, Fair). He also seems to like Mr. Bump as he was adamant about going on a picnic date with him in Rainy Weather.
Dislikes: Listening to other people especially when they try to give him good advice, being tickled by Mr. Tickle, being told what to do by other people, when cafés and restaurants don't sell any bean burgers and beanballs, Mr. Grumpy (because they fall out and fight a lot), not winning games, things that he breaks by touching them and calls them either cheap or fake, Mr. Rude and his farting gas and his bad manners, good advice, Mr. Bump's accidents, Little Miss Whoops' accidents, Little Miss Calamity's calamities, Little Miss Scary (because of her scary ways), Little Miss Chatterbox's constant non-stop talking, Little Miss Naughty's pranks and Little Miss Bossy's bossy, selfish and arrogant behaviour.
Rivals: Mr. Quiet (sometimes and it's most likely because they are not very good friends and they seem to never get on with each other and he also gets annoyed with him), Mr. Grumpy (everytime because they never get on with each other at all), Little Miss Calamity (because of all the calamities she had in Season 1, the only season she appeared in before the creators removed her from the show for Season 2), Little Miss Scary (because of her terrifying ways), Mr. Fussy (because Mr. Fussy has different thoughts and they also never get on with each other), Mr. Rude (because of his bad farting gas clouds and his bad manners), Little Miss Helpful (because when she tries to help, it all goes wrong), Little Miss Magic (because her magic doesn't work out right), Mr. Noisy (because he is an extremely loud person who is far too loud indeed. It might be because of his megaphone and his big boots which stomp loudly on the ground when he walks along like an elephant), Little Miss Chatterbox (because she is a fast and chatty talker), Little Miss Giggles (because she giggles a lot and she really can't help it when she giggles every time), Mr. Scatterbrain (because he can be clumsy and has a very short and bad memory and that is why he is such a scatterbrained person), Mr. Bounce (because he can't stop bouncing all the time and he has a very hard time trying to stay on the ground), Mr. Tickle (because he loves nothing more than tickling people all the time and he usually does it for fun and to try and likes to make people happy and make them laugh. Mr. Tickle has even tickled Mr. Stubborn before), Little Miss Whoops (because she has her own accidents), Little Miss Naughty (because of all the pranks that she likes playing on people) and Little Miss Bossy (because of her bossy, selfish and arrogant ways and behaviour).
Jobs: Being a stubborn person because he never admits whether he is wrong about everything and anything or not and thinks everyone else is wrong even though he is the one who is always wrong, Steamroller Operator (in the episode, Jobs) and a Secretary (in the episode Sneezes and Hiccups)
Nationality: Scottish (UK) Nigerian (US)
